After endless months of rumors and speculation, The Wrestler’s Mickey Rourke finally stepped foot into a WWE ring — to box.
After WWE villain Chris Jericho won his match, he called out the actor, who was sitting in the crowd.
Rourke, looking decidedly badass in a black leather vest and jeans, climbed into the ring to the delight of those in attendance at Houston’s Reliant Stadium.
“Rourke’s gotta remember, nobody’s gonna yell cut,” commentator Jim Ross said, as the actor and Jericho circled each other in a fighting stance. After grazing the Canadian grappler with a few left-handed jabs, Rourke landed a very-real-looking left hook onto Jericho’s head, knocking him down while the crowd erupted.
Randy “The Ram” would have been proud.
